How Christopher Columbus ruined America and film
Robin Williams was (and still is) one of my favorite actors but even he made apologies and jokes about “Bicentennial Man.” When left to the imagination, the original Isaac Asimov story (from which the film was adapted) could be considered enjoyable but the translation to film was just poorly executed. The film was plagued with inconsistencies and progressed with a lack of chemistry and character development which turned an interesting subject into a lackluster film.
Chris Columbus sat in the director’s chair for “Bicentennial Man” as well as taking the role of an active producer. While some could argue that the subject matter was intriguing, not many would argue that this was a good film. It was quite a disappointment to see a story with such potential fall apart.
